Jesus Creed Thanksgiving

It is Thanksgiving in the USA, a day we set aside to be with family and to give thanks to God for our blessings. We are thankful for health and provisions … and we are deeply aware that our country has taken some serious economic downturns of late. And that means moms and dads and boys and girls are struggling. We pray for them today.

We are thankful for our family, including very especially the addition of Aksel Donovan, our new grandson — son of Annika and Lukas.

And… Kris and I want to express our thanks today for you, the Jesus Creed blog community.

And … to “RJS” for her contributions to this blog that far outdo anything most of us can expect. I could go on … go ahead and post your own thanksgivings today.

    I thank God for my wife, Deb, and daughter Tiffany, and her daughter Morgan, and boyfriend Chris. And for God’s ongoing work of grace in all our lives in Jesus. I am thankful for this blog, for Scot’s excellent work on it (and RJS’s contribution as well). This remains my favorite blog, one to which I need to come back more. (I miss the laptop our daugher had here, and which I could use upstairs. Often my trips downstairs are necessarily too short.)
    Thankful to all I’ve “met” through this venue of blogging.
    And thankful for all the good we experience continually in this life through creation and new creation in Jesus. So much to be thankful for.

    Scot,
    I am so very thankful for your book, The Blue Parakeet, which I finally was able to finish this morning. What a gift. I’ll be blogging my response as soon as I can. Finding your blog, and the Jesus Creeders, has been an amazing gift from the Lord, for which I am so very thankful.
    Thank you for living the Jesus Creek out in this space with such transparency and good humor and respect … I am grateful for the way you lead by example.
    I am thankful to God for each day and each blessing — of faith and family and country and freedom and abundance … and friends at the One T Saloon! ;^)

    I am thankful for my Father and the amazing influence he has lived before me. I’m thankful for God’s work in my family’s life since my brother died. I’m thankful for Scot’s book The Jesus Creed and all the truth it spoke into my life. I’m thankful for finding this blog and all the amazing conversation which takes place here. I am thankful for God’s grace and mercy.

    Now living in Arizona, I’m thankful for the awesome take-my-breath-away majesty of God’s creation… and I get to experience it each and every day. From morning hikes in the mountains to sunsets colored in shades that I could never even imagine.
    I’m thankful for community of family and friends and Jesus Creed-ers. This blog has preserved my spiritual sanity as we continue to search for a faith community in our new home.

    Not many takers here – but I’ll add anyway.
    Beyond the usual, and of course important, suspects – family first and foremost, job, health…, I am most thankful for the opportunity to think, read, study, converse, and write about important faith topics on this blog. I thank God for bring this to me when I needed it and thank you for putting in the time and effort to make this an outstanding public forum.
